Enquiry of the Day / Week / Month / Year / All-Time
Of all the hilarious incorrect enquiries I've ever had when working in a music store, the one I had today ranks as an all-time classic:
Young woman: "Excuse me, do you have any Edgar Allan Poe CDs?"
Me, bewildered: "Um...he was a poet and author of horror stories."
Young woman: "No, he's a country singer."
Me, cracking up inside: "I think you mean David Allan Coe."
Young woman: "Yeah, that's him! Do you have his CDs?"
